The Queen's Bedroom
As with the public rooms, the Royal Family's private quarters on Britannia were not grand and majestic. Rather, they were comfortable and homey.
The Queen's modestly-sized bedroom on the starboard side of shelter deck has light wood furniture with floral designs on the curtains, chairs and bed. There is also a large floral embroidery over the bed.
On the port side of Shelter Deck are two additional bedrooms, which were used by other members of the Royal Family. However, neither of these rooms was dedicated to a particular individual's use.
One of these bedrooms has the only double bed aboard Britannia. It was used by the four couples who honeymooned on Britannia - - Princess Margret and Anthony Armstrong Jones; Princess Anne and Mark Phillips; Prince Charles and Princess Diana; Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York.
There are 16 other bedrooms located elsehwere on Britannia, which were used by the Royal Family and dignitaries such as President Clinton and Mrs. Clinton.
Above: One of the attractions of Verandah Deck is the large binnacle, which was once on Queen Victoria's yacht Royal George.
The Verndah Deck
Just outside of the Sun Lounge is a large expanse of open deck. Here, a collapsible swimming pool could be set up (Britannia has no permanent pool). Alternatively, members of the Royal Family could use this area for outdoor activities. When the weather was right, official functions were also held here.
